In any case I hope you have a great trip.

For touring I would strongly recommend the Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires.
I'd say you're looking in the wrong places.Or at least way different places than where I typically tour. I am curious where that is a problem and at what kind of campgrounds.
My wife and I are planning a tour and we're running into minimum stay requirements at some campgrounds. What has your experience been dealing with them? Do you find that most people are flexible when it comes to folks who are just passing through and need a place for the night? Do you have any tips and/or tricks for reserving for less than the minimum stay?
It's true but I have several spokes at close to zero tension with the rest being too tight. Generally I allow this for front wheels but not for the back.
It may have helped that Don had experienced the western half of the trip on a bike before his accident.
Any component which I suspect may not last the distance is replaced and put aside for local use.
I have fitted inline cable adjusters near the shifters so I can fine-tune shifting as I ride.
I read somewhere else here that 20 was flatter and quieter, neither of which I have a problem with!
If possible, I prefer to know where I'm going to end the day before I get there, or at least know the possibilities. If I have no idea where I might spend the night, the anxiety is a bit uncomfortable. It always works out, but it makes me a bit uneasy.
Has anyone taken the risk of not knowing where you are going to camp for the day? Any ideas that have worked well?
